Ohio State & Purdue Small Animal Hospitals, Please Stop Declawing Cats!

Ohio State & Purdue Small Animal Hospitals, Please Stop Declawing Cats!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Update May 2019 (We inspired OSU to take out the declaw/tendonectomy on their Common Conditions and Procedures page on their website.)

Dear Ohio State and Purdue veterinarians and leaders,

We, the undersigned, ask you to no longer perform declawing in your small animal hospitals.

If you want to provide state of the art care for cats then stop performing this medieval torture on them and profiting from it.

You do so many good things to help heal animals and ease their suffering, yet you regularly perform this mutilating and inhumane amputation procedure on cats in your hospitals.

Please help us educate the public about the awful facts about declawing and about the easy, humane options like scratching posts, nail trims, deterrents, Soft Paws, Feliway, Feliscratch, etc.

By doing so, you will be protecting the health and well-being of cats.

Declawing is the amputation of a cat's last toe bone.

It is performed routinely in your American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) small animal hospitals despite it having absolutely no benefit to the cat. There are always humane alternatives to this mutilating and inhumane procedure. (AAHA is strongly opposed to declawing)

Declawing is below the standard of care in veterinary medicine.

Cats deserve better.

It's time for you to be strong. We will celebrate your bravery in leading the way to a better world for cats.

Which one of you will be the first to do the right thing and stop performing this barbaric and inhumane procedure at your small animal hospitals?

Thank you.
